I am a Doctoral student in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, working under the advisorship of Mary Shaw and David Garlan. I collaborate closely with Joćo Sousa, Bradley Schmerl, and Rajesh Krishna Balan on project Aura, which is a software infrastructure aimed at reducing user's distraction when dealing with computers.

My research falls at the intersection of software engineering and ubiquitous computing. Specifically, I apply utility-theoretic models to designing and implementing an architecture for automating some of the routine chores that lay users do in the course of performing their daily computer tasks. For more information, you are invited to read my research page.
